Not too bad
They pay you for what you work, there is never a shortage is the pay, they are flexible enough in most cases.I have never had an issue with them €11.65 per hour is not a great wage but it is the going rate for security work .

Do not degrade yourself to work for this company
Not one thing about this company is professional.
The managers are heartless and DO NOT CARE about their staff.

It seems like the kind of company that would hire a manager because he goes golfing with another manager.

EVERY WEEK there is a problem with YOUR wages that you literally have to annoy them into giving it to you.

As for overtime, goodluck. Overtime is calculated over 6 weeks WHICH WAS NOT AGREED UPON BY EMPLOYEES FIRST!! Sunday pay ? Extra 5euro PER DAY not per hour.

If you have any kind of issue you would be lucky to get a reply from your site manager for at least 3 days and even at that they will try their best to turn the blame on to you.

They go through every loophole they can find to save themselves money (overtime).

If you pull them up on anything they will will try their very best to punish you in anyway they can, i.e, drop your hours.

Please, please please, if you are desperate for a job please go elsewhere, please take my advice and save your dignity.

Better than minimum wage if you can put your foot down
Rostering department will ask you to work every hour you haven't booked off, (and by the way you basically can't book time off) , no respect for workers, no overtime.

If your alternative is the dole or stacking shelves it's a better job, depending on which location you're sent to.

The only way to stay sane in this company is to work ONLY the time you say you can work. If you can do that and don't need job security for a long time it can be OK.
Pros
Better than minimum wage
Cons
Zero respect for workers, poor rostering, ultimately no internal communications between departments.

Great place to work
Im working as a supervisor / static officer for the company in a busy shopping centre in cork. I have previously worked in the mobile unit department and the control room. In all the years i have worked here i have always been treated fairly and i have gained alot of experience from the senior management. Yes some times the hours are long and the work gets hard but what job isn't. If your the type of person that wants to work hard in a good environment and be able to move your career forward than its the place to be. There are many supervisors and management roles always come available due to the company's expansion

If you are looking to work for a continuously growing company with endless possibilities than i could recommend a better company.


The wages department are always on time.

The senior management are always there're to help. The technology in the company is constantly growing.

There are always plenty of hours there to work if you need it.
Pros
Good place to work.
Cons
Bad attitudes from some lazy staff members

Lone working and no structure
I work between 4 or 5 twelve hour nightshifts each week and I am responsible for the company phone to deal with many issues and staff,i have learned to be very quick in my thinking as rapid response is a key ,management are not available at night so I make all the decisions,it can be difficult to deal with rostering issues and perform my own tasks at very short deadlines the hardest part of my job is trying to get staff at out of hours so I usually use the staff I have and I will fal in to help with their work,
Pros
There is lots of opportunity for extra work if needed
Cons
No structure after 8 years i still dont know what shifts i will work the next week so no panning
